According to BetOnline, Clemson opens as a 3 point favorite against the Hurricanes. Clemson is 6-0 and ranked 6th in the country. Miami is 4-2 after beating Virginia Tech yesterday. The Tigers have one of the nation's best defenses and haven't allowed more than 24 points in a game this season. It's worth noting that Clemson has only played one road game in 2015, a close 20-17 win at Louisville. Miami is undefeated (3-0) at home. Miami's offense has been improving on third downs and Brad Kaaya (10 TD 1 INT) is playing as well as anyone. Stopping Clemson QB Deshaun Watson will be a tough challenge for Miami's defense, but the Canes have excelled at forcing turnovers this season. Can't wait for Saturday. This is a huge opportunity for UM to make a statement and finally break through in a big game. Miami can probably still win the Coastal with a loss to Clemson, but would likely need to win the remaining five games. That's what makes this Saturday so important. Go Canes.
